Effectiveness of engineered systems is often judged by the extent to which they fulfil their intended purpose. For this to happen a system must be available when required and be able to be used reliably, consistent with operational needs. This subject explores the concepts of Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM), and the relationships between them. RAM directly affect the effectiveness of a system. The approach taken to understanding the concepts include a treatment of each of the factors separately, together with a consideration of the relationships between them, so that a systemic view of RAM is obtained. Students are encouraged to consider the applicability of concepts and techniques used to their own experience in system acquisition and support.
